Yonaton Behar
Yonaton is happily married with 6 children, and 8 grandchildren, and lives in the most amazing Torah community in the world - Har Bracha. He is proud to live on the frontline of the settlement of the Land of Israel and, to be called a settler. Yonaton grew up in a Conservative family in Jackson Heights, Queens, was heavily involved in the Betar Youth Movement and went to Stuyvesant High school and Queens College. He made aliyah in 1984 and got married in 1985. In the past, Yonaton worked as a 'Sofer Stam' (scribe) and has written hundreds of mezuzot and six 'Sifrei Torah' (Torah scrolls). He has worked for Yeshiva Har Bracha as the English-speaking Public Relations man for many years, and also translates Rabbi Melamed's weekly article 'Revivim' http://revivimen.yhb.org.il/ in the 'Besheva' newspaper. Yonaton also manages the highly popular website Halakha Q&A: Rabbi Eliezer Melamed https://www.facebook.com/HalakhaQA/ and is also a longstanding member of the Likud Central Committee.

Shalom from Har Bracha!

PLEASE, EVERYONE, JUST CALM DOWN! Everyone, just get off your HIGH HORSES, climb down from the HIGH LADDERS you have climbed, take a DEEP BREATH, and extricate yourselves from the artificial WHIRLPOOL the Left-wing and the media are contriving with one goal in mind, and one goal alone – to oust the Right-wing government, return the Left-wing to power, and establish a PLO/Hamas/ISIS terrorist state in the heart of our one and only country, a terrorist state that will endanger the very lives of millions of Jews (and Arabs!), and threaten the very existence of the State of Israel!

What's more, early elections would cost the Israeli taxpayer some ONE BILLION SHEKELS, money the State of Israel cannot afford to throw away unnecessarily, and which could be better used to help the poor and the needy.

The present government is functioning relatively well -- there is no need for change. With change comes the possibility of receiving something worse. Now, some might believe that the chances of receiving a worse government are slight, HOWEVER, YOU NEVER KNOW FOR SURE! Therefore, in my humble opinion, it would be sensible to listen to what our wise and holy Sages taught us as a general rule: when in doubt, 'Bari v'shema, bari adif', (something 'sure', or something 'possible' -- take the 'sure'), or in other words, 'A bird in the hand, is worth two in the bush'!

With Love (and Concern) for Israel,

Yonaton Behar
